Summing Up: MY Top Female Solo Songs – Other Singers

We have listened to solo songs of Suraiya, Geeta Roy, Shamshad Begum, Raajkumari, Asha Bhosle and Surinder Kaur, Uma Devi & Meena Kapoor and Lalita Deulkar, Ameerbai Karnataki, Hameeda Bano, Zeenat Begum, Pushpa Hans in our Micro Analysis. In the ultimate analysis, the range of songs from even this universe of solo songs of female singers other than Lata Mangeshkar is quite diverse and substantive.

The development of my understanding and liking of the Hindi Film Songs over all  these years has been shaped at different stages of availability sources like Radio (only), audio cassettes, EP/LP records, audio / video CDs/ DVDs and then the internet. The songs that I continued to get to listen across each of this medium do remain a fairly large number. But, there is no denying that internet has filled a big void in my known unknowns as well as unknown unknowns in so far as HFM is concerned.

In order to be fair to the songs that I have listened only of late on the internet, I have decided to choose at least one song from the songs that I so listened in the present exercise of  The Micro View of the Best Songs of 1949, over and above one from already well-established, known known and liked songs.

With that caveat, here is My Choice of the TOP Solo Songs of the Other Female Singers for 1949:

I have three singers – three songs for the final bet on the BEST Other Singer – Song category:

The choice of the BEST among these will rest on where the wheel of roulette will stop.

For me any one will be a jackpot……

SoY has also released Best songs of 1949: Wrap Up 2. After a very meticulous, balanced and fair analysis, wherein the choice of the best ‘other’ female playback singer was Shamshad Begum, followed by Suraiya.

The Micro View of the Best Songs of 1949 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Other Singers – Lalita Deulkar, Ameerbai Karnataki, Hameeda Bano, Zeenat Begum, Pushpa Hans

After having covered solo songs of significant ‘other’ female singers, like Suraiya, Geeta Roy, Shamshad Begum, Raajkumari, Asha Bhosle and Surinder Kaur, and Umda Devi & Meena Kapoor, I thought I would be able to put the remaining ‘others’ of other in one post, but little did I realize that most of these ‘others’ would individually have significant number of songs. And the songs were quite prominent in the storyline of the respective films, too. That I had not heard these songs certainly does not take away the fact these were big names in the vintage era that was coming to a close, and they had had created their own niche.

So each of the singer indeed (at least) deserves a separate identification  – both in the title and the in the main body of the content.
